The NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS105E) provides essential traffic monitoring and simple configuration capabilities to meet the needs of a growing business.
Companies are putting more applications and demands on their Ethernet Infrastructure. Using VoIP phones and IP cameras requires more than simple plug-and-play connectivity. Additionally, Internet-based applications such as Hotmail and Google Calendaringhave made keeping the network up a business-critical need. However, companies do not necessarily have more money or advanced training to deal with complex managed switches. ProSAFE Plus Switches like the NETGEAR GS105E meet this growing need by providing easy-to-use visibility and limited configuration capabilities. To provide more insight into the network behavior, ProSAFE Plus Switches offer traffic monitoring for users to observe traffic behavior. Additionally, if there are connectivity issues, these switches offer a cable diagnostic test capability that can identify and even locate problems in the cables. To optimize traffic through the switches, ProSAFE Plus Switches offer both port and tag-based prioritization to keep latency-sensitive traffic moving ahead of less critical packets. Also, as a means of improving security or managing collision domains, ProSAFE Smart Switches offer VLAN technology. ProSAFE Plus Switches offer these monitoring and configuration capabilities at only a slight cost premium over unmanaged switches, delivering great value to the end user.

Simple Plug-and-Play Convenience
Engineered with plug-and-play features, the NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS105E) can be used to directly connect as many as five different computers or multiple peripheral devices to your network. You can use the NETGEAR GS105E as a platform for virtual network groups or as a support option for monitoring your network. With this switch, you can also prioritize your traffic to guarantee uninterrupted dataflow for your sensitive packets.
Safe and Effective Transmission
The NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus GS105E is engineered with port mirroring, which gives you a convenient option for monitoring your network traffic. This allows you to minimize your traffic congestion and prevent data leakage, without disrupting your data flow. The port mirroring feature also allows you to monitor the behavior of incoming packets, increasing your protection against unauthorized traffic.
Cut down on your power consumption by integrating the NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS105E) into your network. Compared to conventional switches, it uses 60 percent less energy and features a convenient power-down mode, which conserves energy whenever a port is not being used. Manufactured from 80 percent recycled materials, the NETGEAR GS105E is safe for use within the workplace and automatically adjusts its power transmission to fit with your cable length.
This NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS105E) is engineered to optimize data transmission between multiple systems. If the network is congested or suffering connection difficulties, you will find a convenient cable diagnostic test that enables you to hone in on the chocked areas. In addition, this NETGEAR GS105E offers multiple tag-based prioritization options, which you can use in assigning the importance of different packets.
Featuring plug-and-play capability, the NETGEAR GS105E requires no software, just Ethernet cables and a power cord. Once you've plugged in the cables and connected the AC adapter cord, the switch is ready to use.
